2465 FRANCE (Saint Martin) - Baie de l'Embouchure

Located on the northern French part of the island of Saint Martin, at south of Orient Beach, Baie de l'Embouchure, also known as Coconut Grove or Le Galion, is one of the calmest beaches on the island and is a great place to learn to windsurf. Can still be seen the remains of the Le Galion Hotel, which was once one of the, or the most exclusive hotels on the french side of the island. A plan to completely rebuild the hotel back in the 90's ran into local politics and the plan was abandoned.

About the stamp
